MFI 2020 goes virtual

Due to the uncertain situation surrounding the Coronavirus and restrictions and travel and meetings, the conference will be fully virtual. All accepted papers that are presented at the virtual conference will be published on IEEExplore. We will adapt the conference program to optimize it for new mode and adjust the prices to reflect the lower costs of a virtual conference. We wish you the best of luck for the reviews and hope you and your relatives and friends stay healthy during these turbolent times!

What is MFI 2020?

The 2020 IEEE International Conference on Multisensor Fusion and Integration (MFI 2020) is an international conference sponsored by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS) and the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society (IES).

When will MFI 2020 be held?

September 14 – 16, 2020 (Monday to Wednesday).

First day (Sept. 14) will be tutorials. Second and third day (Sept. 15 & 16) is the regular conference. Welcome reception is in the evening of the first day, Sept. 14. Banquet is on the evening of the second day, Sept. 15.

Special Issue in Sensors

Authors of high-quality submissions with good ratings will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers to a special issue of the MDPI Journal Sensors.

Radar 2020

The week after MFI, there is the Radar 2020 Conference in Florence. Use this opportunity to visit two great conferences and see more of Europe.

Location

Karlsruhe is a good place for sightseeing and for enjoying the beautiful scene, castle, and surroundings. The conference is held in the centrally-located IHK Haus der Wirtschaft, from which the castle, museums, and shopping districts are easily accessible. Located in the south-west of Germany, Karlsruhe is also a perfect starting point to visit not only Germany but also France and Switzerland.
